    Be prepared to be over worked

    Store Manager (Current Employee) Las Vegas, NV

    ProsFriendly corporate employees who are easily accessible. The company offers unlimited sick days for salaried personnel. Competetive pay for high volume stores.

    ConsThe company insults their employees by releasing quarterly earnings in the hundred millions of dollars and then only giving 2% raises. They do not provide enough payroll to support the volume of the stores. Lower volume stores work on single coverage most of the time, not allowing employees to take proper breaks. HR is too concerned with not having employees upset rather than doing what is right to run the business.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIn order to get what you want from your teams and the colume you want from your stores you need to invest in provided all the tools necessary including appropriate payroll. $2800 in payroill for a store that does $38k a week is not nearly enough when half of that goes to the store manager and assistant.

    Opportunity for advancement, poor pay for non-executives, horrible work environment, unfriendly exec mgmt (upstairs).

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Rockford, MI

    ProsVery large company that does a great job of promoting from within. Tremendous opportunity for those that are patient (5 year minimum). Some very sharp group and brand managers. Good place to learn. Grand Rapids (20 minutes away) is an up-and-coming town - safe, family friendly, great schools, etc.

    ConsTerrible pay unless you are a director or above. Limits on how large of a pay increase an individual can receive when promoted or changing jobs. Office environment is horrible, very boring. Plan to work (in office) from before 8 to 6 at least, unless you are part of "the club" and then you come and g as you please. Sr. executive team is not approachable and on the attack in meetings. A lot of dinosaurs that resist change. Very very political.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEasy opportunity to improve employee experience. Find something that sets WWW apart as far as perks for employees or the office environment. Certain competitors offer paid time off for volunteering, team building trips, 3:00 Fridays, work from home, etc. Do something to make the work experience fun.

    Opportunity for growth at Wolverine Worlwide

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Rockford, MI

    ProsWWW has over 100 year history in the footwear business, manufacturing and sales. The people who work for the company are incredibly nice and committed to the company. It has a good formula for financial success with a broad stable of brands and distribution in over 140 countries worldwide. It has relatively young senior management team that is introducing new ways of doing business.

    ConsThe 100 year history also has resulted in entrenched, old-world business practices which are difficult to change organizationally. The company is located in Western Michigan, a beautiful, but remote area making it difficult to recruit top talent and a pain for business travel. Also, not a pool of diverse talent.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou are on the right track. Continue to drive standards and requirements high to build bench strength. Takes some risk: fund professional development and drive sales growth vs. control expenses. Work harder to build relationships w/customers and consumers alike.

    Mixed feelings about the management

    Graduate Intern (Former Employee) Rockford, MI

    ProsThere is a vast opportunity to learn and bring about change. The management encourages change

    ConsThe work culture is a little laid back, and a lot of people in the top management are not very supportive.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry to motivate your workforce, and get rid of the strong headed people in the management who do not embrace change.

    ProsIn line with my pass experience in the Footwear Industry. It was also in line with my pass collection activities and pass credit experience

    Great Opportunities

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsWolverine Worldwide values their employees. They offer them tuition reimbursement, an excellent menu of benefits, and they often promote from within.

    ConsAs in any organization, Wolverine has made many structural changes. Although these moves were for the benefit of the greater good and for the health of the business, it still causes ill feelings with those friends and family members whose jobs have been lost.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
